Couple Of Events Coming Up Of Interest

Image (1) progress-iowa.jpg for post 17381The first event is the Annual Progress Iowa Holiday Event coming up next Thursday (December 20th)  in Des Moines.  Tickets can be ordered online here.

It looks like it a great line up for what could be thought of as a bit of a celebration for the midterm victories. Iowa’s new congresswomen (gee that felt good to type) will be there along with what looks like some people that are thinking of making that big run for president. Here is the line up for the night:


Congresswoman Elect Cindy Axne 

Congesswoman Elect Abby Finkenauer

Women's March 2019

Then next month it will be time for another Women’s March.  January 19th, 2019 is the date for the main march in Washington and for sister marches across the country. 

Considering how successful the midterms were and how much of the heavy lift was done by women, Democrats need to make sure they support and work with women. March locations can be found here. So far Iowa has a march scheduled in Des Moines:

2019 Women’s March Iowa

January 19, 2019 • 11:00 AM

Des Moines Capitol

1007 E Grand Ave

des moines, IA 50319

Another march is scheduled just across the Missouri River in Omaha that same day for the folks in western Iowa:

Omaha Women’s March

January 20, 2019 • 1:00 PM

Downtown Omaha


Omaha, NE 68102

Keep an eye on that page, though. I have a feeling more marches will be popping up before January 19th. 

There is also a facebook page for the Women’s March which may have some additional information. There is also an Iowa page on facebook which includes march merchandise for sale.
